Just a thought.
My opening raise is ALWAYS 4bb (40c)
I do this to prevent giving away info on my hand and to stop opponents
seeing when I do or don't want a call.
Obviously when I am EP I sometimes get more callers than I want and blind stealing with high pocket pairs can seem frustrating but I figure I gain more overall by being unreadable.
Maybe the fact that ALWAYS betting 5bb in EP, ALWAYS betting 4bb in MP and ALWAYS betting 3bb in LP in itself could make me unreadable?
Maybe they will think I am TRYING to be unreadable BECAUSE I don't want too many callers so they will call me more?
Perhaps I should stop overthinking and just stick to the 4bb 100% of the time!
Do you think that I should increase my standard raise in EP to 5bb and reduce it to 3bb in LP?
I guess this will help cut through my opponents and get me a little more action in LP with premium hands.
Won't this make me more readable however?
